Jhoulys Chacin will rejoin the Colorado Rockies rotation and start Tuesday against the Mets in New York. He last pitched for the Rockies on May 1 and has been sidelined with an irritated nerve in his right pectoral muscle. Manager Jim Tracy made the announcement about Chacin before the Rockies lost 6-5 to the Marlins in a game where the Rockies led 2-1 and 5-5.
